I've had ADHD all my life but didn't come to know it until I met my boyfriend when I was in my early 50's. He has it and has always struggled to maintain relationships because of the difficulties and challenges directly related to this disorder. He asked me to read the book entitled Driven To Distraction to help me understand him better. He...

The one thing I have dealt with from my dad is being told what I said was stupid or some other phrase or so he'd use. This of course has simmered down a little over the years. I think it took me finally getting angry back and asking why he says that. Of course the reply is the usual "well, what you said was stupid, right?" or similar. I admit...

  • Yup, exactly!
Hey all, So this one isn't going to be an article, this one is personal, and it's something I need to get out.

It also comes with a heavy...

Do you know or have you spent time with someone who has dementia/alzheimers/sundowners? How did you find that person to be? Engaging? Lost? Scared? My mother has dementia and she's beyond the point of help at this point, so she spends her time angry, scared, confused and upset. We do our best to keep her happy, I take her for drives, feed...
